Summary of activities

OzHarvest is Australia’s leading food rescue organisation, collecting quality excess food from commercial outlets and delivering it directly to more than 1300 charities supporting people in need across the country. Founded in 2004 by Ronni Kahn AO, after noticing the huge volume of good food going to waste from the hospitality industry, she decided there had to be a better way. Starting in Sydney with one van – the first of many donations from Goodman+ Foundation – she delivered 4,000 meals in the first month. OzHarvest now operates nationally, rescuing over 180 tonnes of food each week from over 3,500 food donors including supermarkets, hotels, airports, wholesalers, farmers, corporate events, catering companies, shopping centres, delis, cafes, restaurants, film and TV shoots and boardrooms. Education is crucial to our business to help enable positive change for vulnerable people. OzHarvest’s education programs include NEST, Nourish and FEAST. Our curriculum-aligned education program FEAST for primary school students is currently being rolled out in NSW in 2019 and nationally in 2020. We recently opened Australia’s first rescued food supermarket – the OzHarvest Market in Sydney, based on a ‘take what you need, give if you can’ philosophy. We recently launched the OzHarvest FoodApp as an innovative solution to connect food donors with charities in remote regional areas. And look out for our new OzHarvest Food Truck, available for corporate, community and private functions and helping feed communities in need around Sydney.
